    There isn't.

    The status is the same as it's been for some time. Just waiting on me to dive into getting the sleeves sorted out, which was very frustrating when I last worked on it.

    The poles themselves, we can run at any time.

    Hey Guys!

    I've begun my build with your kit, and though I have said it privately, I must say it publicly too - AMAZING! I was stoked just to pull the cherubs and cast parts out. Can't stop humming the Well of the Souls theme from Raiders. Anyway, I have the miters joined for the Mercy Seat (the top). I wanted to make sure as I am getting ready to make cuts in my MDF boards - from the pics it looks like the MDF boards are inside the top trim (the large mitered pieces) rather than on top of the large trim pices. Both top and bottom. Am I correct? Sometimes my eyes fool me. Thanks ahead of time! Just want to be sure before I start cutting and gluing.

    By the way, the miters fit perfectly. The tutorial really helps.

    The top and bottom mdf boards sit down in the notched edges of the large boards you have fit together. the notches should fit a 1/2" piece of mdf. So, yes, inside the mitered boards. The gap there between the mdf and the mitered pieces you'll want to fill with epoxy, till it's flat and has no bubbles.

    Perfect! I just did a test fitting and it looks great. I have ordered the putty that you recommended for filling gaps and was planning on using that when it arrives tomorrow.

    Sskunky I will post pics as soon as I get a chance. Not sure if you wanted them to help answer my question or if you just wanted build pics. I am going to start a thread on here for anyone interested.

    Would you mind sharing how you cut the 45 degree angle on the edge (I'm assuming a table saw) but also leaving the 1/16" of the edge straight? Would you suggest making the 45 degree cut first and then making a rip cut along the edge to get the 1/16" straight section?

    I'm referring to the short sides that attach to the legs, I thought when I was commenting that it would just post under that section. so the plywood end that goes into the leg at 45 degrees is what I am referring to.
